Try gathering the center back vertically. With the collar flat, before it's attached to the neckline, run a row of gathering threads on each side of the CB line, then place a piece of twill tape or seam binding on the wrong side of the collar, between the gathering lines and stitch the gathers in place. I did this the other day on a self-drafted knit collar; a 10" high collar piece was gathered into 4", then folded so that when it was attached to the neckline, the back was only 2" high and the gathers created a very graceful "guide" for the rest of the collar to follow.
