        Super cute idea! I've been trying to find something similar to wear in the airport and stuff on the way home

          Thanks! I think VS still sells them, it was a nice alternative to just a tank as I like to wear dresses around the pool and lounging. I like the idea of wearing it home though....I might do something else for that since I have extra crystals!

              Wow! Such a good idea! I want to put rhine stones on a white bathing suit as well and wear it to the beach the next morning =)

                That looks fabulous!!! I would love to do something like that. Was it hard to make sure everything stayed straight? and did you use a hot glue gun?
                I'd really like to try this, but I am sooo not crafty!!
                Good job though :-)

                  I LOVE it! It is so cute! One question.......did you have to apply each crystal individually? It looks amazing, can't wait to see your FG's tank!

                    So cute! I want to make a nightgown like that. What kind of fabric is the dress? I made tank tops for my fg's and they were ribbed which didn't work that well, so wondering how yours is holding up...

                      This was surprisingly not too difficult. A little time consuming (Yes, I did have to apply the crystals one by one). I used a template I made in word and used double sided tape to hold it in place underneath the mylar paper, then stuck them on individually usuing bent nose tweezers.

                      The fabric on my dress is ribbed on the top where I applied my wording. I stretched it over a wood cutting board before/during ironing so they wouldn't pop off when I wear it. The crystals are HotFix so you do not need to use glue, the iron sticks them on

                      I did a white bikini for hte day after as well since I got the hang of it :)
