Quality: Excellent


Leather chaps, jackets and even saddle bags. Cindy and her crew have never let me down. Awesome work every time. Zippers on leather and insulated bibs ... not a problem for these ladies.

Excellent service and quick turnaround. I'm a regular customer of Alterations and Custom Sewing and I've always been pleasantly surprised by the quality of their work. It seems there's nothing they can't do! Glad you're there ACS.
I have all my spandex tights, shorts and thongs made custom here. They are the best.

The fastest and best around! - July 2, 2005

I would have to say, Alterations & Custom Sewing comes highly recommended. My grandparents even drive from Independence to bring their clothes to this store. The owner is very friendly and gets things done extremely fast.  She is always really busy, but always manages to keep her prices reasonable and affordable.

Alterations & Cusom Sewing: The 2 fittings were a success!!! It's perfect! Cindy did such a great job. I would definitely recommend her. She's VERY reasonably priced (the cheapest I could find) but you would never know because she does such quality work!

I was quoted over $400 in alterations at David's Bridal so I came here on the recommendation of friends. She was fabulous.

I got 4 inches taken off the dress, 3 bustles put in, the corset back moved over and she steamed and held my dress in the facility until my wedding date so it wouldn't get ruined.

Cost was cheap but work was not. Even in a panic where I couldn't explain to my mom how to bustle the dress Cindy answered the phone after business hours to walk us through. She even offered to come down and do it herself had we not figured it out.

I highly recommend her! I will be using Alterations and Custom Sewing again in the future if I need too!


Cindy is amazing!! Always quick work done right! Has even done things same day or next day for me. Prices are great also. I tried to go to other places since I don't live in Excelsior Springs anymore, but make the trip just for her! Best place to go.

Also if you pin yourself you can drop off and pick up at a cleaners in Liberty, MO and I know there are other places she offers that as well.

The owner, Cindy, and her team are amazing seamstresses.  Time to do spring cleaning of your closet?  Bring in those items that just don't fit right, or need some repairs, instead of going shopping for new ones.  Did you know she can even repair or custom make leather items?  And have those holes in your sweaters fixed before you store them away for next year!  My closet has never been more organized with things I will actually wear! 


It was PERFECT, adorable and made me look really good to my new boss. Thank you Cindy!


P.S. I wish I could upload the finished product, it is so cute, it needs to be shared.

Overall Rating: Excellent

Used Alterations & Custom Sewing for my wedding. I lost quite a bit of weight. Four days before my wedding I went to get my dress altered and it was done the next morning - and fit perfectly! And even with the last minute nature, it was only $45. The place is clean and organized and I was very happy to work with her.

Cindy does an awesome job! She saved my dress from a David's Bridal alterations nightmare with only days to spare. She also helped create my already existing veil into an even better heartfelt piece. For the veil was my mother's and was over 30 yrs old. Cindy added a touch of my personality and it turned out exactly as I was wanting! I will never go to another alterations store other than this one!! Thanks Again Cindy for helping make my big day the best!!


I had a surprise wedding come up and I needed a suit jacket let out for the next day. I took the jacket in on Friday morning and had it back that same afternoon at 4pm. The jacket fits great and the cost was well below the average. The work was exceptional as well. I highly recommend this shop gentlemen.

Thank you for the work and suggestions on my daughter's Prom dress.  The dress fit great and she looked beautiful for her Prom.  Because of her fine bones and petite stature it is so hard to find formal dresses that fit her.  We were very happy with the alterations you did so she could wear her dream dress.  I have enclosed pictures so you can see for yourself!  Thanks again.

The most beautiful pillow I've ever had. My daddy's shirt made into a pillow with beautiful embroider on the back, from the very talented Cindy Weir. You just made my day! Thankyou!!!

My daughter needed more than just the average alteration done on her prom dress and Cindy did an awesome job customizing & re-creating the dress. It looked great & was super comfy for my daughter afterwards! 1 wk turnaround, but I'm sure she could've had done sooner if I needed. Little "pricey" compared to the ppl who sew as a side job, but so reasonable for the quality you get! No more back door sewing jobs from the "lady down the street" for me:) Those only created more stress. I would highly recommend!
