    Visiting exhibitions in museums/galleries including costumes (and watching plays/performances/films with an eye on costumes.

    Life drawing classes

    Work experience/visits/shadowing costume staff in your local theatre/production companies.

    Practical experience working with fabrics - so making things for yourself/friends/family or working with a tailoring company doing minor repairs/adjustments.

    Reading blogs about costume (eg sites like http://www.costumersguide.com/ )
