If the tie is colorful, this might represent a creative new approach. To dream of stitching a shirt or item of clothing suggests that repairs are needed in some areas of your life.

If you find yourself sewing a patch on your shirt, was your unconscious speaking in puns? Is there something in your life that needs patching up?
