I made mine as part of the figure. Look at my snow cake with figures. The jacket is black gumpaste and then flesh hand is attached, snow pants are just a rectangle of gum paste cut in the middle 3/4 the way up to make the legs. The little girl was just a head and hands then gumpaste body all one piece. I have found this the simplest way to go.
You can put clothes over the body just roll thin gum paste cut the shape and attach with gum glue. Its a lot more work however. Im not sure how clear this is, but looking at figures is the best way to figure it out. Check out the gallery for the gum paste figures. hth
