Why would all three outlets in a bedroom and the bathroom light lose power even if the breaker is reset?

Wires could be disconnected from the main fuse box. Check to see if you have any Ground Fault Outlets installed and ensure that all have been reset. It sounds like they may all be on one circuit and if so, You need to check that all outlets nad light fixtures have good connections and are tight. Its possible that you have a GFI outlet in bathroom that is tripped or is bad the bedroom outlets are possibly wired to same circuit It just may be that the fault that tripped the breaker also broke the circuit to the other points. Look into the boxes of the outlets and switches. If there was a fault you may see carbon where an arc broke a wire to the remaining points in the string.

That's one I've never seen. Does the bathroom light turn ON when the bedroom light is switched Off? Does the bathroom light switch turn the bathroom light on and off normally when the bedroom light switch is left on? Need to answer these questions, then find where the bathroom light power comes from. It's power supply should either go directly from the power oanel to the bathroom light or to the bathroom light switch. The bathroom light switch merely acts as an interrupter for the hot leg of this power supply.

You should install no more than 9 outlets. If you add a 75 watt light then install no more than 8 outlets and that 1 light.

You probably blew the breaker for the lights. While usually the lights and outlets in a room are on the same breaker, it isn't always done that way. And you may have blown the light bulbs in the lights.

It means the breaker has been tripped. There are two possible ways to reset it - some have a button on the outlet (there may be several outlets on one circuit, so you may have to look around) the other is the main breaker in your breaker box. You'll need to find a reset the breaker.

Well it is only a guess but I would say your bathroom and bedroom were sharing the same cct and you have not kept the cct going by placing the dimmer in line. There would be a continuation of wiring from the dimmer to the bathroom that you have perhaps not reconnected.
