I doubt it.
I discovered this new sling style during Ivy's incubation. Very impressive, it is basically a wrap that you don't have to wrap! What? Take a look:
See? The 2 loops imitate the wrapped criss-cross, and the sash is your last wrap. (You'll understand if you've ever used a wrap; if not, have no fear, you'll understand in a minnute.)
Slip 1 loop over easch shoulder. See my wonky pic:
Baby goes in the cross on front:
This is plenty of support for Ivy. She is really snug in there and goes right to sleep every time.
Add the sash for extra support for a heavier baby, or for longer wear, like hiking. Ivy's head is tucked into the fabric in the above pic because she is sleeping. It works wonderfully. Doesn't hide postpartum flab or anything, but *sigh* nothing does.

This carrier cost $12. The fabric is a 60% cotton, 40% poly interlock from JoAnn Fabric. You could get 100% cotton interlock or jersey from www.naturesfabric.com, but I was in a hurry and also feeling quite cheap. My sash fabric:
I made it up because I couldn't find my box with my baby carriers in it after Ivy was born! Also, for the record, I sewed the entire thing during the previews of The Hunger Games. So, in other words, about 9 minutes.
