When I changed a picture to black and white, there is a black line where mom's pink shirt and white shirt meets. Any way to fix this?

Having a guess at the answer-
Is it possible that the original color image is showing some color fringing from lens chromatic aberrations?  If so maybe the B&W conversion has emphasized the color fringe and is more obvious on the mom's shirt.
Notice also that the boy (on left) in the striped shirt is also showing a 'line' above his shoulders when viewed magnified.
