http://www.loveitsomuch.com/stores/gossip-girl-fashion-cap-sleeves-empire-waist-satin-chiffon-maxi-celebrity-dress-1345684026,16268.html

I would like to make something similar to this dress for my daughter's 4th birthday dress. I think I have an idea of how to put it together, but I would like to look up some how to's on the style and especially the sleeves, but I don't know what to call it.  

I'm going to make this as a bodice and a skirt So that the skirt is gathered but the bodice is not.  I want elasticize the (empire) waist and put a zipper either on the side or in the back.  I'm trying to figure out is how I can attach a braid to the waist, that wont interfere with the elastic, or look too silly because of the elastic.  Any tips?

Those are called Cap Sleeves

There's a tutorial for adding cap sleeves to a sleeveless dress here:

I'd take the time to gather the waist, not elasticize it.  You won't get the benefits of elastic anyway, if the skirt is attached to a fitted bodice (i.e., it won't go over your head without a zipper).  Then adding a zipper is no problem.
