Sowing grass seeds on the top of already grown grass

Some parts of my lawn have grass which is sparse and brownish or in other words not healthy, if I put a thin layer garden soil on top of it and sow grass seeds, will the new grass be able to grow on the top of already grown unhealthy grass so it can supplement the old grass. Digging out the unhealthy grass patches and sowing grass seeds is a lot much hard work. thanks
