Bodysuit Beginning

I've been commissioned to make a full knit bodysuit, complete with gloves, socks and hood. I got the yarn at the beginning of this week and have finally progressed to a stage where I can post the start and it actually looks like something.
Since it will have to be pulled on up over the hips and shoulders when it is complete and needs to fit a variety of sizes, from a women's size 6 to size 20, the neck hole needs to be rather large. I'm using the tall, broad-chested husband and little old me for the maximum and minimum sizes. I'm not quite happy about the neck yet, but I think I'll get more finished before I go about fussing with it anymore. It will be easier to get a feel for how it will actually drape when there is more below it.
