I’ve got this Burda pattern for my son, it’s a cool jacket. One in leather/pleather, another in twill or nylon.
I got rip stop nylon to make a wind breaker with this pattern. It calls for interfacing around zipper and facing. Can I use iron on interfacing on nylon, or do I have to use sew-in interfacing? I’ve never sewn with nylon rip stop.

Do you have an advice? I appreciate your help.

    Since nylon is generally not suited for ironing as it melts at low temperatures, I’d suggest you find a sew-in that works for you. See if knit interfacing that sew-ins is possible-it might provide more drape than a woven for the jacket.

    Fashion Sewing Supply sells Pro-Sheer Elegance, which is a fusible interfacing that doesn’t require steam or a high heat (though it does help). I have used it on everything from nylon to silk to cotton shirting. The owner of Fashion Sewing Supply is VERY helpful and responsive to any questions you may have so I recommend starting there.
