Petticoats in a dream pertain to marital or romantic affairs, and their meaning depends on the action and other aspects of the dream, but as a general guide: Petticoats that the dreamer considered as pleasing or pretty, rather than strictly utilitarian, are a warning against vanity and conceit. Buying petticoats is a caution against extravagance, and changing a petticoat predicts that the dreamer will soon be off with the old, on with the new. Losing a petticoat is a sign of unexpected rivalry for the affection of someone the dreamer takes for granted. A torn petticoat indicates disenchantment; and a mended petticoat (or to mend one) is a warning against foolish pride.
