The Irish leine (shirt) was worn by both men and woman. Men often wore just the leine or with a kilt, while women often used these shirts as undergarments covered by open-sleeved dresses.

Women would wear the Leine with an overdress made either of linen or wool. The overdress had open sleeves to allow for the large Leine bag sleeves. Irish women would wear a ‘brat’ which was a peice of wool striped, plain or tartan pattern worn as a shawl over the dress and pinned at the shoulders if desired.
