I use zip ties and short dowel pieces to cinch up veneer glued to curved surfaces, like the violin body form in the photo. Use zip ties in pairs on top and bottom of the form to hold each dowel. Needle-nose pliers are the preferred tool for adjusting the tightness of the zip ties.
If one zip tie is too short, you can always hook two or more in tandem, as shown.
Once the glue dries, just snip off the zip ties and the outer dowels fall off.
