I don't think you need to re-do the sleeves. As a matter of fact, I think the sleeves can be different than the body. Why not?
Why not pull out all the ribbing in the body, and re-knit from there down in a simple st st, and finish it off with 3" ribbing to match the sleeve's style of ribbing (didn't you say it was 2x2 ribbing?)?
Honestly, the star attraction is 1) the yarn 2) the sleeves.
The body can be st st with 3" or 4" ribbing. But, st st will fit looser than the original body ribbing did. Oy.
BUT, I don't think your sweater AS IS looks bad. Honestly, I think you look great AS IS.
What Tahki yarn is it and what colorway is it? I sure do love it.
