SS22 Collection - What We Created

Katherine Williford

Our new collection drops Wednesday, March 16th. It's so close! The process of sourcing fabrics and designing new pieces for this season felt like a natural progression of our previous collections. The most important thing to get right, I decided, was how the garments made me feel. When I wear some of our most well-designed pieces, I feel perfectly put together without having to overthink styling.   The silhouette, easy fit, and beautiful fabrics do all of the work so that I don't have to!   With that in mind, I set about designing new garments that felt effortless and fun. My first task...

Hanna Reversible Top Tutorial

Katherine Williford

Hello sewing friends! I am so excited to share my reversible top tutorial! Here, you’ll be able to get sewing instructions as well as the PDF sewing pattern for our best-selling Pamut piece, the Hanna Top. This is a classic top pattern, made better by the fact that it is reversible (you can wear it with the V in the front or in the back). Its also very easily adjusted to suit your personal taste and body shape (you can easily lengthen or shorten the body, make the V deeper, or even add patch pockets!). In addition, this pattern looks great...

"...I put too much pressure on myself to be a version of “successful” that probably does not exist..."   At the beginning of 2022 and after two years of exponential growth, I’m sitting down to do our first ever financial planning session and yearly recap. It’s a bit embarrassing to admit, but I try not to pay too much attention to the financial ins and outs of Pamut… In the past, I’ve found this a stressful (and tearful) endeavor. I realize this is because I put too much pressure on myself to be a version of “successful” that probably does...

Black Women Owned Businesses - Our Top Picks!

Katherine Williford

If last year taught me anything, it’s that being a business owner is never going to NOT be a roller coaster ride! Just as soon as I felt like Pamut was on track for smooth sailing in 2020, the pandemic hit and our lives all turned upside down. Maybe that’s why entrepreneur Jes Averhart’s message of reinvention resonated so strongly with me when we met earlier this year. As so many of us have had to “pivot”, both professionally and personally, the notion of acclimating to that big space outside of your comfort zone has never rung truer.   Jes...
