    This is the shirt I purchased when I was heavier, US $18.9 |Womens Chambray Shirt Top denim Shirts and Blouses Long Sleeve Snap Button Cotton Ladies Shirt Camisa Blusa Camisetas Femininas-in Blouses & Shirts from Women's Clothing on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

    I was able to slim the sides.

    Unfortunately fixing the shoulders was a train-wreck (now I learn the hard way, I need to take-in the shoulders)

    When I tried to sew along the thread seams, it was crooked and I couldn't put on the shirt. However when I tried removing the threads it made a nice hole on the shoulder area.

    How to darn this hole so that it is not noticeable?

    Sew a embroidery around both side . It will look good. Try ladder stitch by hand and do embroidery work around it.

    google Pattern darning :)
    it's a type of embroidery specifically for darning denims and jeans .
    if you can darn it in a leaf like pattern, with a thread close to the denim color . it can be passed off as a stand alone applique work !!

    I will research ladder stitch and embroidery like a leaf pattern. I love flowers and stuff.

    Open to other creative ideas......

    you could actually do an applique work. of may be an embroidered patch of a say.. umm bunch of buds or rose blooms or small sprig of a flowery climber .. then can stitch it on the torn part
