Finding a custom seamstress whose strong suit is country style, creating garments that are both practical and beautiful, can be a great asset. Depending on the style of the individual designer, this could range from old fashion country, modern country or even Australian country style, specifically. Each of these different types of style can be broken down into their various segments, with certain themes taking center stage. I designed this tshirt at teejunction.com.au

It may seem odd to disassociate Australian style from that of the rest of the globe but in fact, the trends of the Australian continent have been very separate from those of the rest of the world throughout history. European fashions are typically more tailored and exact, while Australia tends to give a more casual, uncomplicated approach to its style.

Specifically, trends in Australia are heavily driven by the unique fashion fabrics available in the country. Chinese and Japanese silks, woolens and traditional hand-dyed fabrics combine with comfortable style to give Australian its own unique place in the world’s fashion landscape. The culture also lends a lot to the country style motif, making their fashion trends distinct with outdoor style.

When searching for a seamstress, look for someone who sews original designs by hand. Natural fabrics are preferable for the overall look of the garment, as well as for the impact, or lack thereof, that the process of creating the fabric has on the environment. The relationship between a seamstress and her client can almost be romantic, so if you find someone who’s sewing and designs really appeal to you, you will know she’s right for you.
