Siding installation: think I screwed up

I'm installing T1-11 siding on my shed. It's not heated or insulated and under a covered patio attached to my house. I live in Tucson, AZ. My problem is that I installed the siding incorrectly as I didn't tuck the siding behind the outside rafter and instead tried to but up to it. Now looking I see I could've tucked behind it and up higher. This would've made it look a lot nice inside the shed too as the old siding is still there and exposed. Now I was planning on putting trim between the siding and the outside rafter and sealing with caulking/painting and trying to "hide" my mistake on the inside with 1/8" thickness plywood between the studs (from a shelf I have in there to the sheathing for the roof) so the back of the t1-11 and the old pressboard siding can't be seen. What do you think?

I think you need to attach a picture so we can see what you are trying to describe!

It's your shed so you have to decide what's going to look best. Yes trim would hide it.

You could use some thin molding to hide the gaps. ... like lattice or door stop.
