Gap around brick molding


I have a shed that is attached to my home. I just installed a new door frame. I'm trying to install the brick molding; however, I have a big 1/2" gap on the right hand side. The left hand side is a tad bit too tight. Is there a trick to fix this w/out having to take the door frame back off and setting it to the right? Thanks for the help!

Not really---pull and reset the door or cut the siding evenly around the opening and cut your own trim to match the new larger opening.
