Pin the top of the placket in order to start marking the button placement through the concealed buttonhole placket.

Next, use a pin to penetrate the center of the buttonholes, from the right side of the garment, and make a mark with a white pencil where the pin touches the buttonhole placket underneath.

Just to make sure that I marked accurately, I always use a ruler to confirm my marks. Then sew on the buttons!
