How to Make a Wilma Costume Out of a Tee-Shirt

Wilma Flintstone, the long-suffering wife of suburban caveman Fred Flintstone, was a part of generations of Saturday mornings for children all over the country. Since its debut on September 30, 1960, "The Flintstones" entertained adults and children alike. Wilma's signature red hair and off-the-shoulder fur frock are immediately recognizable by fans everywhere.
