Acidic soil, lime & peat moss

My clients soil test results came back at 5.3 and she is wanting to seed her lawn. I will be applying lime now, and then again in the Spring as directed by MU extension office. There are portions of the lawn with a good stand of grass but other areas are dirt/hard pan. The bare areas would normally get top dressed with peat after the renovation process but since I'm trying to fix the acidity problem should I choose a different topdress material since peat is acidic itself?

The largest dirt patch is bone dry and in full sun, the other is in heavy shade and soggy! multiple seed varieties will be used.
