I would like directions on how to cut the long sleeves off a shirt and make it short sleeved. Answered

These are brand new dress shirts and I don't want to ruin them.

measure how long you want the sleeves to be, add 1 inch to that measurement.

cut

for the sleeve in to make it the right length, then sow around the folded sleeve
i'm hoping that this makes sense

That's essentially what I did, though I did a double fold so the cut edge is trapped inside the sewn area (which is how the commercially made shirts are made). You can take the measurements off an existing short-sleeve shirt that you like the fit of.
