I have been tackling quite a few children's simplicity patterns and I am confused - the instructions say use a 5/8 inch seam unless otherwise noted on the pattern piece. When I look at the pattern piece the arms eye says 3/8 inch seam - does that mean the side seam is 3/8 inches as well? I can't tell if they mean the whole side of the garment has a 3/8 inch seam or just the arm's eye?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Just the opening for the arm.

Probably because it will be folded, finished with bias or faced.

With any of these methods a 5/8" seam would have to be trimmed to 3/8", so this would be saving you construction time.
