Entry: dirndls (n.)

In context: " they'd shell out for little paper theater tickets and file in in their sweater vests and tweeds and dirndls and tank up on espresso at the concession stand and find seats and sit down and make those little pre-movie leg and posture adjustments, and look around with that sort of vacant intensity..."

DefinitionA style of woman's dress imitating Alpine peasant costume with bodice and full skirt.

Other: Here is a picture.  I still remember the first time I played this word in Scrabble.

I thought it might be interesting to list all of the 7-letter Scrabble words with only one vowels.  Even counting Y as a vowel, though, there are 97 options, a bit too many to post.  The only 9s I could find, though, were: STRENGTHS and TSKTSKING.

SNOOT score: 1
