Repairing denim tear

I've found a denim dress on eBay (link below) which has a tear in the
fabric, three inches from a side seam. I will deeply appreciate any
suggestions about repairing the tear to make it less noticeable. Thanks in
advance, and Happy New Year to all.

Either free motion darn or three step zig zag to close it up, if you use a close color thread it would be less noticeable, Also you might embroider or appliqué something over it.

Look in a fabric store for an appliqué in a similar color to the existing trim and sew over the tear? Or, apply an iron on patch on the wrong side, and buy some embroidery thread and embroider a small design over the repair? Make it a "design feature". ;-)

That is what I did with a casual chambray dress that I like a lot. I found a little iron-on patch that was very similar to the embroidery on the yoke of the dress. It looks like it was planned to be there.
