Try letting her dress herself. That's my only suggestion. My son could put on his own shirt before he was 2, so she should be able to do it.
I don't know how else to help you, but good luck :)

Is she ok with button up tops? As with anything with this age, it will probably pass if she is distracted for a while. Try the button ups and focus on her dexterity and praise her ability to do the buttons. She'll probably forget about the fear by the time you try putting a top over her head again.
