What if I made the bib into a dress - wait, they used to have kids in pinafore's all the time. I had always had in the back of my mind when seeing pictures of those that they were a useless garment, but no! A 24 hour bib they are! And the child thinks it's a pretty, so she'll wear it.
So we were hungry, refusing to take off the dress, so I ran to my t-shirt pile. Laid another dress on the t-shirt with the shoulder seams on the side of the t-shirt.
Then child decided that that dress should be the one worn, using freshly peeled off dress, I folded in the arms and cut around the dress shape and cut a neck hole.
She is still not to fond of wearing this to eat, but she will accept it easier than the bib now, maybe it has to do with not being tied around the neck.
