Sewing does not pertain only to clothes. Sewing shut a garment is also a metaphor to tell you to “sew your lips shut”. Sometimes your brain knows you have a secret you should keep. You were at the verge of talking about it because it is an interesting piece of gossip to share. Then at night, you have this dream about sewing shut a slit or mouth or something. You wake up puzzled, until you reflect on this dream imagery and metaphor. You would feel horrified when you realize your dream was telling you to sew your lips shut. So are you going to defy dream prophecy and talk about that secret? No. Its better to be safe than sorry. Divergence of a secret may lead to disastrous consequences.
Sewing as a metaphor can also mean patching up torn relationships, and sewing to mend before farther damage wrecks the thing in question.
Dreaming to sew
Some years ago, I had this dream about sewing garments. After I woke up, I was perplexed. In real life, I didn’t own a sewing machine. I didn’t know how to operate a sewing machine. I sewed some minor alterations by hand. I didn’t know how to sew entire pieces of clothing from scratch. What was the meaning of my dream? I thought about my wardrobe. I had clothes to cover my bare essential needs but lacked variety to alternate my dressing. The truth for my dream interpretation hit me squarely on my shoulders. My dream of sewing was to tell me to sew clothes for myself. I would have to learn to sew by machine, or hand sew entire garments. My dream told me I needed to vamp up my wardrobe.
