I've seen this whole "make a cardigan into a skirt" trend all over the runway lately.
Grab a cardigan that's a size bigger than your usual size (since you'll be wearing it around your hips instead of your neck). The hole just has to be big enough for where it will sit on your body. If you want a waist skirt, then get it in the same size or a size smaller. This DIY is perfect for old cardis that don't fit you anymore (whether they be too small or too big).
Button it up on the part of your body you want to use it for, then tie the sleeves in front. This look would even be cute if shifted and tied to the side!
