What is the best way to add a double stroke to a set of grouped objects so that the stroke is on the inside?

When I attempt to do so, the inside stroke is greyed out.

When I try adding strokes to an unfilled rectangle and placing this on top of my grouped objects, I am struggling to get this to lined up properly, even using the x and y coordinates.

This is a seamless pattern that measures 43"x43". It needs to have a double stroke that sits inside so that the image doesn't exceed 43"x43". I'm not sure I'm explaining it correctly.

enter image description here

Thanks!

I'm not sure if I understand your question but I'll try to answer. One way to add a double stroke is by using the appearance panel and add a stroke and apply offset path effect to it. Set the offset to a negative number if you want it on the inside.
