Window trim

I replaced an old window and had to make the window frame smaller. I decreased the frame by 1 on each long side and about 2.25 only one short side on the bottom. Trying to figure out the best way to trim it out inside and outside.
Inside: Cut a very slim piece of drywall to cover the newly added frame, install trim, patch wall, and repaint? Maybe use plywood instead of drywall?
Outside: take trim off, cover the new frame with slim of plywood, replace trim, paint?
any better/easier solutions?
ill upload pictures from my PC tomorrow. Thanks for suggestions!

Welcome to the forums?
What type of siding is on the exterior? or is it brick?

It's wooden siding outside and drywall inside.

Inside should be fairly easy, at wood at whatever thickness is needed to bring the window level with drywall and then finish it with casing.

If you can cut the caulk and remove the brick mold you'd basically do the same thing on the outside. If you hope to leave the brickmold intact you'll have to measure and see what you can slide under it, tack it in place and caulk.
