There's no limit to what you create with crochet. This includes beautiful garments and accessories which combine crocheting and sewing with fabric. (Note: This article contains free patterns)
Crochet can look really exquisite as the highlight of a garment. Think of a dress that uses crochet as the bodice and flows into a beautiful fabric drape!

Do you have boring old T-shirts laying around? ... Or a large piece of fabric (maybe even from another garment) that you like, but have no idea what to do with it? Crochet a collar, add sleeves, add a cool crochet edging!

So many ideas!
I've seen crochet added to pockets of jeans, shorts, and jackets. As borders or to add length to all kinds of skirts and tops. I've also seen crochet edgings used on home decor such as curtains, pillow cases, edges of blankets and quilts, tablecloths and pillows.
If you can think it, you can make it!
