  Fabrics usually shrink when wet.  Your dumping water on it is causing
the fabric to shrink, not expand.
  Try putting the top up as far as it will go, letting it dry in the sun,
then closing and clipping it in place.
  Repeat the water soaking again, let dry, and the fabric will be a bit
looser than before.
