Possible to Repair Dress Shirt Sleeve?

I got a tear in my dress shirt sleeve today, and I'm wonder if it's something that a tailor could repair.

Obviously, the answer to this question is "find a tailor and ask them," but I'd rather not bother with the hassle of going to the tailor if it's impossible. The tear looks like this
, as you can see it's pretty long and runs directly down one of the creases in the shirt sleeve. The shirt is oldish so if it's a total loss that's fine, but I'd rather not go getting rid of a shirt if there's a chance of preserving it.
Does this look like something a tailor could do something with? If so how obvious would the repair be?
