|Bathing won't change her coat. Being really aggressive with the Furminator can make a coat look flat (because it strips out the undercoat) but you didn't mention doing that.
Maggie's coat was always thick, even as a puppy, but Aussie coats vary a lot. Some are thick and fluffy, (Maggie is as hairy as a Rough Collie!) some are thin and silky (more like a Border Collie). It could just be your girl inherited some recessive genes and got the thinner coat. It will certainly fill in more as she grows too, up to about 2 years old.
You could also try the old "Grow Hair on a Doorknob" formula, or a variation on it, or try a fish oil supplement daily. The extra fat and omega-3 fatty acids are supposed to help with skin/coat health.
