Another piece I was going to give away but decided to fool around with first.  This was just an inexpensive wool seater from old navy.  Thought I'd adapt it for spring.

First, I cut about an inch (or more) above the rib cuff and at about the elbow

Pin the cuff, inside out, to the RIGHT side of the cut sleeve.  Match up the cut ends.

Sew seam right at the edge of the rib cuff, leaving about an inch (or more) of seam allowance.  Sew next to straight stitch with a zig zag stitch.  Trim seam allowance, cutting close to zig zag stitch.  Finish with bias binding, with a zig zag stitch, to keep the sweater from unraveling.

Turn seam up towards shoulder.

Thanks!  It does look pushed up somewhat, because of the bulk of the seam - I'm still trying to figure out how to slim that down a little.  Its still a lot less bulk than actually pushing up your sleeves.

I have gone to find myself, if I get back before I return please tell me to wait. Thank you!

Good job! I think it looks great!
