soft top flutter

Took my 31 sedan out for the first time . The soft top I have on fluttered a little. I have no interior yet. Wonder if it will flutter with a headliner installed. I put on an inexpensive top . It is a 31 Chevy and I did it in warm weather and stretched it good. It is laid on 3/16ths gray spongey material and it has a thin clith on the back of it. with slats holding all up. Is there a cure. Will this maybe rip off at 60mph?
Your experience?

my old rag top

I used to fold a blanket and raise the top about a foot off the windshield and tuck it in then pull the top down tight. no flutter and if kept us warmer in these cold winters.
