The first thing is to attach the sleeves. With right sides together, pin the edge of the sleeve to the armhole of the shirt. Make sure the center of the sleeve hits the shoulder seam, try pinning that first. Sew the sleeve on from armpit to armpit. A serger works best. If you don't have one, use a zigzag stitch or other stretch stitch. A straight stitch doesn't work on knit fabric. Make sure to keep adjusting the fabric as you sew so it's flat when it goes through the machine. Sew on both sleeves in this manner.
