No your children are not at an increased risk of developing sarcoma due to the fact that you had breast carcinoma. The old study that you are referring to suggests that there is an excess risk of breast cancer in the mothers of children with soft tissue sarcomas, and not vice versa.

This article also does not conclude that children have a higher risk for sarcoma. There are some cancers which are at increased risk in first degree relatives according to this study, and this is mostly due to the hereditary risk.
So I would still maintain that based on the present knowledge your children are not at increased risk for sarcoma when compared to an average child.
