linear pattern on a curved edge-flange

I have a sheet metal part that I have added a curved edge flange. What I want to do is flatten the sheet metal part, create a linear pattern of punched holes on the unsuppressed flat pattern, then suppress the flat pattern so the holes appear in the edge flange. When I suppress the flat pattern the holes do not appear on the curved edge flange. Is there a way to do this?

I can however create an offset plane for each individual hole that I need on the edge flange and create an extruded cut for each hole. The hole appears correctly in both flattened and unflattened states (oblong of course) but it would be very cumbersome create a plane and extruded cut for hundreds of holes.
