After much searching, I couldn't find a tutorial for the button hole type that the Bespoken Sweater uses. This technique works well with buttons that need more than 1 stitch bound off. So here it is in a nutshell:
Step 1: Place markers evenly spaced down your button band to show where each button hole will begin.
Step 2 (RS row): Work up to your first button hole marker in pattern. Slip marker and bind off one or more stitches, depending on how large your button is. Bind off one stitch LESS than you need for the button hole. Working in pattern, K2tog or P2tog, depending on what is supposed to happen next. Continue working button band in pattern until you get to the next marker, then repeat all Step 2 instructions.
Step 3 (WS row): Work in pattern until you come to the first gap created by button hole bind offs done in Step 2. Turn your work so you are now looking at the RS. Use the knitted cast-on to cast on the number of stitches you bound off for each button hole +1 extra stitch. Turn work again so you are looking at the WS. Repeat these instructions for each button hole gap.
Step 4 (RS row): Work button band stitches in pattern until you reach 1 stitch before the first newly-cast-on button hole sts. K2tog or P2tog (depending on what you need to do to remain in your button band pattern) the last button band stitch and the first newly cast-on button hole stitch. Work remaining newly cast-on button hole stitches in button band pattern. Repeat this instructions each time you are 1 stitch before the first newly-cast-on button hole stitches for each button hole. Once this row is complete, your stitch count will match the stitch could you had before you began working button hole rows.

I added a pocket to my daughter's Homecoming skirt. You can do it, too!
I also talked about what I did when my daughter had a backpack that was in great shape until the zipper broke, training my cats to use an underground pet fence, and what I think about athletes that kneel while the national anthem is being played.
