Guys thank you so much for the nice comments! I love everyone on craftster, you are sweet. Isn't the fabric great?

i may have skipped this, but did you use a pattern for the dress?
Sorry, I neglected to mention that I did base this dress off a simplicity pattern but I cannot remember the number.  Huh I made some changes when cutting out the pieces for size and I also changed the neckline. Because I do not follow directions I apparently sewed the zipper in wrong. My mom told me I messed up because there was supposed to be one flap not one on each side but I did not understand. I thought the zipper was fine! Also the pattern called for a 16 inch zipper and that seemed a size with a limited range of options so I used a 14 inch instead. I don't know why it would ask for a 16 inch since that's not so available.

I know crochet bikinis might not be for everyone, but they are just so fun, and customizable!

So if you want to know how to make the dress basically use simplicity with a couple modifications, and if you want to know how to do the bikini I could put a tutorial if anyone is interested, but basically you have to customize.

Also, I haven't finished that essay yet...eek!

This are both beautiful. I love the dress; I want one for myself. And I wish I could crochet at all, much less a bathing suit.

I adore that dress, it is fantastic! The bikini is great too, but there is no way I could get one of those tops to keep me covered and stay decent  Grin. If i could only put some support in .... lol

Both items are great and you sure look like you had a great time in them.
