There should be about 3-4cm of excess fabric at the end of the sleeve from the pleats. So just take in as little fabric as possible from a few inches beforehand
(Just be mindful that you will be taking the shirt.in an additional half an.inch again when you take it in from the wrong side to make your french seam).
Worst comes to worst, if you accidentally take in too much, take in the cuff from the center. Just do it on the wrong side of both pieces, so you have to spread them apart. Then press the seam open (preferably cut the "loop" so it's not like a dart), fold them back.together, and reattach it to the sleeve
