I want to line four 55"x108" ready made linen-look drapery panels; however, lining fabric is only 54". I can barely slip lining under side seams if I don't cut salvages off. Will this work? How much out of square is Roc Lon? If this doesn't work I am think of using cheap 60" x 120" tablecloths for lining or sheets. I will be so grateful for your help.

I think it would be easier to hang a separate liner (like a shower curtain does) than to open up the panels--if that would work with the type of rod you have. Assume you are doing this for fading in Tx? They do sell extra-wide sheet fabrics online. If your windows don't go to the floor, that part against the wall wouldn't need protection from the sun.

sheets would be the best answer. you could put button holes on top and hang them over the curtain hooks that are on your drapes.

Thank you so much for your response to my query. I like your suggestion for itd simplicity. The lining fabric i have would be wide enough if it is simply hanging behind panels. Have you done this before? My panels hang by ring clips on an iron rod that is installed almost to ceiling, above a wall of windows that includes a large arched window flanked by two smaller ones. While the panels are stationary most of the time, hamging between each window, I occasionally pull them to.closed. Will lining fabric bunch up behind panels whrn moved if not attached at sides??

are the ring clips in the curtains. Or are they pinched on?
There are curtains out there made for regular hooks you would slip it on over. Now in your case if they are rings in you curtains and the rod fits through them. If your curtains are pinched on you should have no problem.
If you have rings I would pin them just to the back of the drapery.
If you have the rings that slid on the rod with the pinch hooks so you pinch you curtains up. You could double them together and hang. as far a bunching together no. It would hang like a normal drape. The panels would be just a bit smaller on each side so they wouldn't show same with the hem. I haven't used them but a few friends of mine have.

I am trying to solve that issue as well for one southeast facing window.
I have a long panels on a rod that don't darken the room enough due to one yard safety light. Plus it gets so darn hot- about 4 degrees higher than in the rest of the house. So I need insulation and darkness. But when I open the panels, I want to see the view as it is pretty.
I am stumped on what fabric to use for lining.

sewing brings joy and meaning to my life...

Look at your local fabric store. You can a coating lining. You can get darkening lining. For the heat I would get the darkening.
you can ask at the fabric store. They will show you the best.
