To see or wear a gown in your dream, symbolizes your embrace of your feminine side. You are freely expressing your femininity and using your female intuition to guide you.
If the dress is white, it suggests that you want to appear pure and angelic toward others.
A dream of contrary—the more handsomely you are dressed, the worse the omen. In fact, the most fortunate dream a woman can have is to imagine herself naked. See EVE. If, however, your clothes are shabby or torn, it is a fortunate sign, though not so good as nakedness.
Dreams of a gown represent a special occasion or a rite of passage.
A gown is an outer reflection of an inner preparation for the next level of your evolution in consciousness. See Bride, Dress and Goddess.
If you dream that you are in your nightgown, you will be afflicted with a slight illness.
If you see others thus clad, you will have unpleasant news of absent friends. Business will receive a back set.
If a lover sees his sweetheart in her night gown, he will be superseded. See Cloths.
