Sewing scapulars side to side?


I’m considering purchasing a fivefold scapular, and among the models I’ve found, there is one that caugh my attention, because the scapulars are sewn side to side, instead of superimposed:

Maybe it’s just my OCD attacking, because I can’t stop thinking about it, but is this form acceptable? I read in the Catholic Encyclopedia that several scapulars may be attached to the same pair of bands, as long as they’re complete and are attached to both bands.
But, idk, if they sewn that way, it doesn’t look like the other scapulars are attached to the bands at all. :no_mouth:
