Call her Tailor Swift.
Makayla Wray, 29, an East Village tailor, works in Chinatown for an upscale designer during the day.
But Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. until dark, she’s a street seamstress working out of an old cart stationed at the corner of East Houston and Mulberry streets.
“In the morning I make runway clothes, then I come in at night to hem the little guys,” she told The Post.
