Itchy lace, go away!

So I've had Bodyline's L362 OP for a while (if you must ask it's in lavender) and I absolutely love it. My sister, who abhors skirts and dresses, even commented that it looked like Rapunzel's dress from Tangled! However, there's one problem I have with it that prevents me from wearing this more frequently: the lace on the sleeve cuffs is itchy beyond belief!

I actually considered selling it for that reason, but I've now realized that it might be better to DIY it by removing the wretched lace. And I've no idea what to do with it.

Essentially it looks like the lace is attached to the elastic and I might not be able to take a seam ripper to it without destroying the elastic. I'm not sure how to describe it since I don't have any pictures of it right now, but that's the best I can do.

Does anyone know how to remove lace that seems to be sewn in the same area as elastic? Or point me to a tutorial on this kind of thing? I'd really appreciate it!
