In a short story I'm reading (or trying to) I found this sentence:


I think the general meaning is the character saw from the rooftop's handrail someone's legs protuding from her skirt fluttering in the wind, but I can't understand what the two in bold means, and how would the sentence's meaning be different without them.

    So it'd be something like "I saw skirt fluttering in the wind and two legs protuding from there [the skirt]", with そこから being "from the skirt"?

    Yes. Do you mind if this is marked as a duplicate?
