Stitch them together, front and back shoulder seams with a zigzag stitch or a serger.
Then, match the side seam and stitch them together as well.
The folded side of the dress will also need to be stitched together, only on the opened area.
Choose the dress’ sleeve length you need, or leave it sleeveless.
In all cases, fold the sleeve in half and press it flat to create a crease in the middle; this will help you to attach the sleeve later.
Then, stitch the side with a zig zag stitch or a serger.
Turn the sleeves to the right side and press them again.
