Patterns of Fashion 1

Been enjoying looking through and reading Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion 1&2.
(Great set of books recommended).

Now I got brave and scaled up the pattern.
The wrap-over half robe on page 44 of patterns of fashion.
(Haven't got round to the skirt bit yet.)
Now I found the front sat ok..but the back didn't. The centre back didn't reach to the 'centre back'. My instinct was to extend the last panel. I'm wondering if I should have extended it at different place.
