Recently I made this custom shirt for one of my clients from light-weight distressed denim. It is one of my original designs and features pin-tucks on the pocket and right front...and special "Cuffed-Hems" on the sleeves (see Tutorial below). The Coconut Shell Buttons and Pro-Weft Interfacing used on this shirt are from www.FashionSewingSupply.
After cutting out your sleeve, turn the bottom (hem edge) of the sleeve to the Wrong side by 1-1/8", then turn it again by the same amount (1-1/8"), then Press. All we are doing here is "turning it twice to the wrong side" by 1-1/8" each time...just as if we were making a double hem. This photo shows the bottom edge turned twice. The sleeve is shown photographed from the side so that you can see the folds--
