If the jacket is expensive, it may be worth your while to have it professionally
repaired.  check with the manufacturer of the jacket.  Also, Campmor has what
I have found to be a pretty good repair dept.

If it is a cheap one, then sew it up and seal the new seam if it is on the
top of the arm.  

Happy trails
