Lydia Armstead has been toiling away at her tiny Read Street digs since 1985, and in those 25 years she’s become a master alterationist and a mighty fine tailor. In the past, we’ve brought her ‘spensive jeans that needed hemming and dress clothes that might have otherwise become hand-me-downs. From her walk-in sized shop, she’s given worn but favored clothes new life and provided pleasant conversation. This year, the Tiny Tailor saved summer by making our baggies fit again—huarache sandals, not so much. But remember, Tiny Tailor is a serious mom ‘n’ pop, so cash only, no credit cards, and don’t even think about asking to write a check.
