Shelly has been stressed all week. She was trying to choose what clothes to wear on her first day of school. Fortunately, she remembered that the only thing that mattered, was that after a long time, she would finally see her friends and her favorite teachers again. After all, at the end of the day, no one will remember what they wore. So, she put on the most comfortable clothes and her most beautiful smile and went to school.

Sely’s free pattern is available here!
