When making buttonholes in dark material with dark thread and it's hard to see where you should be finishing up, just extend the markings for the hole so you can easily line up where to stop sewing if you can't see the thread. Don't forget the tailor's chalk will most likely have disappeared in normal handling even before the garment is finished.

Extending the lines is a great idea. Also, you might want to baste the chalk marking lines in with your machine so they don't rub off. If you use light thread the lines will be easy to see.
