This can be a good alternative to buying, or at least a temporal solution till you find one blackout curtain that satisfies your requirements.
This tutorial from wikihow tells you, step by step, how to line curtains. It is very interesting the introduction, where it talks about the benefits of saving in the heating bill if you use this type of curtains.
Lining curtains is a great way to conserve energy and save on your heating bill. Some people suggest it may save you up to 25 percent if you line all of your curtains with thermal backing.
If you make your own curtains, you can line them by cutting a length of fabric equal to your curtain fabric and hemming them in.
However, if you have already bought curtains and they need to be lined, you can do it with a few craft-store materials, including thermal fabric. You can also line the curtain without a sewing machine.
