I found this costume and I really don't feel like paying $50 for it so decided to knit my own.

does anyone have a link to a pattern similar to this? Im kind of looking for a deeep vneck tho. that I could modify and make longer.

help

There are free dress patterns on magknits.com and knitty.com.

For the v-neck, that would depend on whether you want to knit top-down or bottom-up.  Both instructions can be found on Craftster either in this section, the Knitalongs section, or the Completed Projects section.

For the ragged edges, you would probably be best served by putting those edges on a stitch holder or provisional cast on (instructions can be found on this page http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/index.php).
You would need to work each section by joining yarn to the live stitches or by undoing a section of provisional cast on.

For the faux rips, I think the one- row buttonhole can be used http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/ (scroll down).  They wouldn't be diagonal, but I think it's easier than messing around to bind of then cast on so many rows.

I can't say I like the style  Wink, but..It reminded me of a pattern I saw on the tahki website that I did like. You could use it for the shape and the holes.

Jeez.  That's a lot of knitting for a costume, unless you plan to wear it multiple times... also, when all's said and done, that much yarn will probably cost you $50!  Just something to think about, your post made it seem like you were trying to save on cost.

I think you could get a really similar look by just sewing the dress instead of knitting it.  Just my humble opinion though.
