IMDb summary: "A glamorous woman returns to her small town in rural Australia. With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong." Described by Nigel Price in a Facebook post on a respectable thread as "a spaghetti western with sewing machines instead of six-shooters! It's even got the scene where the gunslinger (seamstress!) arrives on the train at the little town and looks menacing." See for the sewing machine and the train.
