As a really "green" newbie, I am reading all the sewing blogs I can find. Came upon a sewing project that a lady had done with the interfacing of her skirt band. It is lovely, made of flowered piece of material. I made a band on the bottom of my skirt from a contrasting piece, and now want to line my skirtband with the same material. Don't really know how to sew this contrasting on my original material, so that is just shows inside.

Are you referring to the waistband facing?

If you cut the waistband and the intended lining the width plus two seam allowances (one for constructing the two fabrics other to attach to the skirt) you will have what would appear to be a lined waistband.
Seam the two fabrics across the top edge, press the seam allowance toward the "lining" and edge stitch to help keep the lining from showing on the public side of the waistband.
