Convertible top binding is puckering

Building a convertible top for the '29 and having a bit of a binding issue. Straight lines look great, but any curved area wants to pucker. Is it due to the binding not being 'bias cut'??? Using 1" double fold binding. Pictures are mock-up materials, not using the Stayfast material yet. Dont want to waste $65/yd material trying to get the patterns laid out. Side panels and back curtain area where the window will be sewn in are the areas that I'm concerned with. Should I try to find a few yards of bias-cut binding? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
