The YouTube video says to wrap strong wire around the flange of the limb and to turn it so that it is hidden in the body of the doll. https://m.youtu … ch?v=Anv46lPUXmc

If this is a valuable doll then I would consider sending the doll to a doll repair shop/hospital as they can do an excellent correctly attachment. Here is a link to one but there are several listed on Google - just call them and ask for an estimate and then decide about your options.
I would first check Google with your zip code and you may find a local shop that does doll repair.

I do not believe you can attach the arm using the you-tube link suggested as your doll's upper arm is attached to her body.
For a temporary repair you might be able to push the arm under the cloth and attach it with a tight rubber band. Then take white thread and wrap it over the rubber bad as tight as possible and tie tightly. Then take scissors and carefully snip/cut the rubber band loose.
