Pilot Light - A Thin Blue Line
A pilot light is a small flame used to light a gas fire. Like my furnace, this pilot light is just visible in the darkness and races off to disappear in the distance.
Pilot Light is a ruched slouchy hat that employs an integrated I-cord that moves across the surface of the fabric using cable crossings.
