      Leave the button holes open, sew buttons on the back of the other
      coat side behind the exising buttons and button it up from the
      inside, kind of like a blouse with a hidden placket. If you
      need "buttonholes" to show on the top, take off the buttons, sew fake
      buttonholes on the flap and then sew the buttons over
      the "buttonholes" and behind as earlier mentioned. They can be taken
      out later if needed to revert.
