Olivia Palermo Inspired DIY

Hello everyone,

Welcome to……….


A few months ago I got a few emails from a few lovely reader’s who asked if I could share a really quick and easy sewing project.

So one day while perusing around on Pinterest. I saw this cute and casual look that Olivia Palermo was wearing and thought my oldest would love a look and this is just the type of DIY my reader’s were emailing me about. I hope you enjoy this really quick and easy DIY Project.


For this project, I used the following item’s…….

A sweatshirt (you can also use a sweater any color you desire)
Zippers (2)
Coordinating thread

This is a project that can be done by hand if you don’t have a sewing machine.

At the side seams of your shirt, you are going to place your zipper as pictured below. Cut your shirt a 1/2″ shorter than your zipper. Install your zipper.

Now pair a plaid button down underneath.


My daughter opted for a blue/grey sweatshirt so that she can wear it with various plaid shirts underneath which will give her more versatility.


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

  1. Hi Timeka,

    That zipper is such a nice detail that makes a simple design appear very cool. 😀

    I like how the shirt peeks through. Nicely done!

    Pinterest feels like heaven to me, so much style inspiration there. Lol

    Have a great week.
