A dream about a tailor or getting clothes tailored points to things like a transformation or modification in your life. The meaning of a tailor may be more subtle than that, however.

The tailor represents your ability to adapt and fit into different situations, while the act of tailoring symbolizes the changes you're making to better suit your needs or desires. This dream could be a reflection of your personal growth, self-improvement, or the need to present yourself differently to the world. It may also indicate that you're trying to 'fit in' or adjust to a new situation or environment.

A tailor can often be a difficult dream experience to get one's head around. To know confidently, I would have to really get to know the dreamer's life and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of a tailor or the act of tailoring may indeed suggest a process of self-adjustment.

Some additional thoughts: However, from a Freudian perspective, the tailor, a figure of authority and expertise, could represent the superego, the moral component of the psyche that mediates between societal expectations and personal desires. The act of tailoring, then, symbolizes the ego's attempts to negotiate these demands, to 'cut' and 'stitch' the self into a socially acceptable form. This dream could indicate an internal struggle with societal norms or a desire for acceptance. It might also reflect a fear of judgment or a need for validation. The clothes being tailored, the 'second skin', might represent the persona you present to the world, suggesting a desire for change or authenticity.

Dreaming of a tailor or tailoring clothes may be thought of as a spiritual sign of self-refinement and evolution. The tailor symbolizes divine guidance, helping you to 'tailor' your life according to your spiritual path. The act of tailoring represents your efforts in aligning your actions with your higher purpose. The clothes being tailored are your spiritual 'garments', reflecting your inner state. If they are being altered to fit better, it suggests that you are growing spiritually, shedding old patterns and embracing new ones that are more in tune with your true self. This dream is a divine message, encouraging you to continue on your path of spiritual growth and transformation. It's a reminder that you are being guided and supported in your spiritual journey.
