Something like this could do it:

git am <file>
git checkout -p HEAD~
  # leave out hunks that you want, or do other edits with "e"
git commit --amend
  # here you can also drop a note to the message that you've done some edits

Another option would be using the commit message from HEAD@{1}, which
points to the HEAD value before the reset. That can be done with "git
commit -c HEAD@{1}"  or "git commit -C HEAD@{1}". Former lets you edit
the message, latter not.
