Today I am reminiscing. It has been over 10 years since I posted my first video on YouTube - a shaky, poorly filmed tour of my dollhouse back in 2009. My voice is squeaky and high-pitched. In the video, it is blatantly apparent - I'm a kid. Now, it's 2019, and I am a grown-up. I've finished high school. I've graduated college with a business degree. I've moved to a new city alone and started my first full-time job. I've traveled a bunch, and seen some amazing places and met some amazing people and have even fallen in love.

Other than age related differences, the dolls are pretty much the same. The only real difference is the hair. #47's hair is layered, and VERY straight. Its so silky, its hard to put into a hairstyle. It took me a while to wrestle her hair into a braid. Sonali
Here's a pattern for your very own American Girl doll-sized mermaid costume! This idea comes from my summer movie, which is all about mermaids (sneak peek below). Print these photos out so that they fill a full piece of printer paper (that's the size I designed them for) and they should fit nicely on your dolls. Enjoy!
