The year 2020 has basically been a bust since Covid-19 struck. Gyms and parks have been closed and events cancelled or postponed.  Quarantining at home 🏠 has caused many to gain a few pounds, making some clothing fit tighter.  Time to call a good tailor to the rescue!

👔 Instead of throwing out clothing that no longer fits well, a tailor (or seamstress) can simply alter your clothing for you.  Listed here are the best tailors in Northern VA.  This is based on the number of reviews across multiple websites as well as from personal experience.

✏️ While compiling this list, I found it rather sad that a number of highly recommended tailors had been forced to close their shops due to their loss of business from the pandemic.  Now, more than ever before, we must support our small, local businesses to help them stay afloat.  If you need alterations, hemming etc, please consider using one of the best tailors listed below that are close to your community.  If you have a favorite that is not listed, please share their info in the Comment section below.👇
