Many tend to interpret the loose sleeve from the shinrone dress as being a
part of the leine.
Irish with billowy sleeves
From this article
By the way, from another list one person posted that they have seen the
extant piece and says that it is being displayed on too big of a mannequin,
as well as wrong shape. So there is a possibility that the front opening
shape of patterns for the shinrone style may be incorrect. If someone
actually had a hands on, off the mannequin to create their pattern, then
they are more likely to be correct.
As has been stated earlier, the sleeves that are in the link that you
offered are incorrect. There is a narrow strip of cloth that does come down
from the shoulder to the sleeve, but it is not on the Leine. It is on the
Shinrone dress, which is what is worn over the Leine. Lucas Deherre made a
drawing of the dress, and Cass McGovern's pattern is the closest I have
found on it, myself. There are many dresses out there that are called Irish
Country Woman, or Highland dress, and from what I have seen it is incorrect.
I have attached Deheere's creation of the gown to give you an idea of what
it should look like...
