if you ever have this problem, here's how to fix it :D

    when the lace used to thread the ribbon is too flimsy, or just can't stand the tension, it will break. this leaves you with messy lacing.

    simply remove the ribbon and carefully cut of the lace loops so you are left with two strips of flat lace running either side, this way you don't have the messy broken loops hanging around, without loosing that decorative quality.

    get an eye that matches the color of your skirt. for light skirts, silver and for dark skirts, black. sew it on so the lace just overlaps it, exposing the loop.

I would leave the lace loops on to help hide the metal loops/eyes, unless the lace was ripped.
