With my 2 oldest we always say if both of them were playing in a mud puddle my dd would be covered from head to toe and ds wouldn't even need his hands wiped off. It's just their personalities. Sounds like some of your issues aren't that she's "messy" it's that your Are frustrated that she's chewing on her shirt not using a napkin, etc. and for that I would say just keep plugging along with teaching her those skills.
