The original window had no molding, extension jambs and a cheap looking stool and apron. I built up a 3 1/2” curved extension jamb and curved molding with a straight casing to match for the sides. The molding was built up from two pieces 3/4 mdf with a plunge router and circle jig, with a back band applied. The extension jamb was laminated from 1/8” thick pine clamped to a curved jig.

Wow! That’s really good looking. I need to re-trim some of our windows; you’ve inspired me!
