When ever I make button holes on a sheer or lace I use self stick stabelizer. I usually use the kind with the grid. While the stablizer is still on the backing I mark the button hole placments along a long strip of it. The grid makes it really easy to make sure the placement is exact. Then I stick the whole thing to the front of the shirt and stitch away. Before I remove it I always use fray check on the stitching at the holes so as not to distort it at all and it keep it neat. Applying it while the stabilizer is still on also ensures it doesn't accidentally get on the fabric.
