The screen material will have to be attached to your PVC absolutely square at Top & Bottom, with the Bottom piece absolutely centered. It will help to have at least 6" of the PVC Bar running past each end, and using "End Caps", you should fill the PVC with clean Sandbox Sand packed with a Ramming Rod.
(...the 6" extra length will allow you to later consider some degree of Tab Tensioning if needed...)
I would consider using a "Tape + Adhesive" attachment, instead of a "Sewn" method.
The Pro White isn't a stretchy material, so it will handle the needed "balanced" weight that will "help" prevent excessive waves. But also note that you will have no Border to act as a edge stiffening assist unless you determine to use Carl's Adhesive Black Screen Flock Tape. And should you do so, it must be applied with the screen material laid out flat and securely (...but lightly...) stretched out taunt.
I don't know if you allowed for any such Border in your measurement...but that also brings to mind the need to roll out the material and meticulously measure it from both Corners to opposite diagonal Corner to determine that the piece you received is absolutely square. You must consider that such "pieces" were not milled to the same exacting standards, or trimmed to such, with the ide that they were to be used to make a Roll Up screen. Everything needed to achieve such an application fall upon your own foresight and abilities.
