How do I alter the sleeves on a sweater?

I have a long sleeved hot pink sweater that is kind of marmish looking. I think it could be made kickier with short sleeves, though. How would I go about altering it?

The sweater is a cotton/cashmere blend. I do not need any kind of fanciness at the sleeves (i.e. just a plain folded over seam would be fine). I am an ok sewer, but I do not know anything about knitting or crocheting. I'm hoping for sleeves as short as these
. I don't want to cut it and then be left with a weirdly shaped mess. Is this doable with just sewing (i.e. no nightmare puckering and unraveling)? and how?
