While using aprons in our day-to-day lives has lessened over the years, that doesn’t mean that they don’t still hold a lot of symbolism.
When you dream of aprons, this can be more significant as they are an uncommon dream symbol, and can hold many meanings, depending on the context on how the apron appeared in your dreams, among other things to consider.

If the apron is tattered, or dirty, you may be working yourself too hard, and you need to reconfigure your priorities.
Alternatively, dreaming of wearing an apron indicates that you’ll soon be tasked with an important and complicated project that you’ll need to be careful about how you approach it.
