Working in a Material World

Whether you’re a deft DIY tailor looking for the perfect material to craft your next masterpiece — or you need a tailor to help bring your ideas to life — Designs by Nhung is a one-stop shop for fashionistas in Yarmouth.

Nhung Nyugen studied socioeconomics in Vietnam but wound up as a tailor due to the popularity of custom-fitted clothes. When she came to Yarmouth, she chose to continue that work — and in 2011, she opened Designs by Nhung, which has been going strong ever since.

You’re not going to find any big name brands at Designs by Nhung; just simple materials of a myriad of different colors and patterns, perfect for the avid seamster or seamstress. The real brand is Nhung herself, who can create designs for clients with a deft hand and a keen eye for detail. She’s even been known to recreate an outfit from a single photo!

Designs by Nhung also offers other services, including vacuum cleaning, alterations, and selling a selection of sewing supplies.
