My sister took a dress-making/sewing class in Silicon Valley last
year. The class that she took was at the Santa Clara Adult Education
Center on Benton Street.
Here is a course description:
"Beginning Sewing
Construct a simple garment in this beginners class. Learn to read a
pattern, select, cut and care for fabric; understand the sewing guide,
learn the basics of our machines, or your own if you bring it. Field
trip to fabric store will be scheduled. New students must attend first
class. $3 lab fee due at pre-reg. Pre-registration required.
Laverty Th 6:30pm-9:00pm EO/7 04-03 5 $50 OPEN"

A similar course is offered in Milpitas:
"Basic Sewing For Beginning and Intermediate Students
You can save money and create professional looking garments as you
learn how to lay out a pattern, sew, and alter. Bring your pattern and
materials to the first class. Sewing machines are provided."
